The Little Bird
The Little Bird
The little bird was sitting at his nest thinking to himself "I am so hungry; I wish there was some food lying around here". He looked down to see a nut that a little squirrel dropped by. He immediately flew down and grabbed the nut and flew up back into his nest. He was so happy that he finally could eat something, but then he saw that the nut had turned into a piece of gold! He was so surprised; he hadn't seen anything so shiny! He forgot about his hunger and thought that he could sell it. So, he went to the local market and sold the nut for 30,000 flyo's (bird money). He was very happy with how much money he got for the nut. He was thinking of what he could do with the money when suddenly his nest started shaking. He was worried that it was an earthquake and he looked down, but what he saw was nothing related to an earthquake; it was a lumberjack! He was cutting down the tree the little bird was living in. The little bird was quick. He took all the money and flew away from the nest. He flew and flew until he stopped near a forest and he started looking for other birds. But he couldn't find any. He went to a tree and sat there and started to think if the lumberjacks had come to the forest to scare the birds away. He was very unhappy and sad and he started to get bored so he thought he could go away for a little while and get some food, but he hadn't even created a nest there and he knew he couldn't leave his money behind because that the money would be stolen. He knew that money and the tree had to be safe so he had called out to all the bird's near him so they could keep the tree and money safe but only two bird's had come and the little bird was very disappointed, he would have only two bird's taking care of a large tree and a 30,000 flyo's, so he came up with a plan. He asked the birds to do everything he says. The bird's agreed. The first thing the little bird said was to find all the bird's and find out where they went, the birds immediately flew away in search of the other bird's meanwhile the little bird had started making his nest and waited for the birds to come back. When the birds came back, they told the little bird that they could not find out the reason why the birds left and they told the little bird they had no idea where they were. The little bird was very upset so in out of his angriness he started making the two birds do everything and was being mean to them. One day the little bird ordered the two birds to guard his tree as he had to go out and get food, so he headed out and waited near the nut's stand to get nut's. After he got the nut's he headed back home and when he reached he couldn't see the two bird's then he realize they left and he also realized that he was being very selfish and mean so he told himself that he would change and he promised that he would never be mean again.
